Told that she must not have children Julia stubbornly ignores all advice and risks her life to have a son, Tommy. In the following years and decades both mother and son are forced by circumstances to draw upon their determination, courage, wit and self-preservation to survive. Tragedy and death, personal and emotional loss, the horrors he witnessed in the war make Tommy an adult by the age of 10 and shape Tommy's character. He risks his life in 1956 and escapes from Communism that has risen from the ashes of Fascism. Working hard in a new country he must deal with different obstacles. From Budapest in the 'twenties, to London in the 'nineties, this is a family saga of three generations, ravaged by two wars and adverse circumstances. Ultimately, the story proves that there is always hope, even against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, provided one has courage, resilience, and mental stamina.
